>Then there's  14.253.55  "fourteen point two fifty three dot fifty five"  I thought using different words for the two decimals would improve intelligibility as well.

Only one of them can be a _decimal_ mark. You either have 14,25355
MHz, or 14253,55 kHz. (the , being the european decimal separator).

When speech synthesised, I'd think the individual digit method would
be better in order to suit users with different home languages, and
then probably also a standardisation to kHz.
"one four two five three decimal five five kilohertz"

just my 16 øre (i.e. 2 EU cents) worth...
